Desolate Beauty: A Contemplation of the Desert
BY DAVID MORRISON
@ VOL 16
ON JUN 29, 2017
Contemplative writer David Morrison and Monk Drums (El Paso vol.11) creator Jacob Neria takes us on a journey of of sound, image, and spoken word celebrates a vision of desert spirituality.
As David explains, there is a beauty that can be experienced in the scarcity of desert if we come to it with contemplative eyes. The word, “contemplation,” in Latin, means to “gaze intently upon.” It’s possible to walk in desert landscapes and witness its emptiness until a stunning beauty arises. And further, this beauty begins to gaze into the beholder, and one is transformed forever. In the Irish language, “to contemplate,” means to place oneself at the “edge of waiting.” The desert is a liminal space on the edge of what’s familiar, and it draws and enchants those who dare to walk in its kenotic embrace.
The images are not professionally shot nature photos, but rather the simple snapshots of a lifelong desert walker. The haikus are not literary as much as they are experiential. Mary Oliver sums it up perfectly: "Every day I walk out into the world / to be dazzled, then to be reflective."
David Morrison and Jacob Neria are members of Desert Rain Community, a contemporary community of Christian contemplative monks located outside El Paso in Chaparral, NM.

Before the break Ellen Raunsmed is researching in intuition at the university and shared her knowledge and experiences from seminars held together with artists, philosophers and dancers. The break kept people chit-chatting and networking - among a bunch of cool women in rollerskates from Aalborg Rollerderby - and bly me it's like rugby ON ROLLERSKATES for women!!! The first slot after the break was taken by artist and a men who pocesses imense knowledge art critic Gorm Spaabæk. He is the man behind a project where Nordjyske - the local paper - hires artists to create i piece FOR the paper inspired by local stories from the area. Lars Ditlev Johansen is educated actor an directs a piece called "A walk in the dark" about meeting life and death - and the theaterpiece will also be part of Bunkerlove inviting the audience onto the beach at night and into the bunkers. He read beautiful pieces of the drama - for me a very moving moment. And then came the complete fun - in the name of PechaKucha variaty in content - there came a whole team of Rollerderbygirls presenting their passion for the game! Brilliant pianist and composer - art & technology student Dominik Blasko finished the evening both talking about composing, making different art installations AND playing one of his pieces - a beautiful dot to a wonderful evening.

"Every now and then, something extraordinary occurs." In Moonhouse from PechaKucha Night Stockholm Vol. 50, Johan Molin shares an inspiring project by Swedish artist Mikael Genberg aimed at building a tiny red house on the surface of the moon. The project is more that is seems at first glance, tackling ideas about how we can fulfill our dreams and goals. If we are willing to strive for something, we can do anything, even if that anything is beyond our most truly wild imaginations. We just need to stop asking if our dreams are possible and start asking how to make our dreams possible.
